The goalsof this studyarethe evaluationof currentfast radiativetransfermodels(RTMs) and line-by-line (LBL) models. The intercomparisonfocuseson the modeling of 11 representativesoundingchannelsroutinelyusedat numericalweatherpredictioncenters:7 HIRS (High-resolutionInfraredSounder)and4 AMSU (AdvancedMicrowaveSounding Unit) channels. Interestin this topic wasevidencedby the participationof 24 scientists from 16 institutions. An ensembleof 42 diverse atmosphereswas used and results compiledfor… CONTINUE READING
